to the running mates to do the heavy lifting. joe biden was blasting the romney tax plan with being out of touch with the middle class. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children by an additional $2,000 a year. how -- all kidding aside, without the boos. stop all that malarkey. this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly ernest. how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify it? >> the romney campaign picked up on that middle class being buried for the last four years during which president obama was in the white house while campaigning in iowa. paul ryan did not miss the opportunity to seize on biden's choice of words. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrati
's obviously a whole realm of possibilities for misstatements and missteps. today joe biden said something that's getting a lot of play on the right. take a listen to this. >> how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> jennifer: so biden of course supposed to help with white middle class voters. his comments about the middle class being buried were -- he was talking about romney's plans to raise taxes on the middle class. but the right and their surrogates are out having press conferences about this right now, probably as we speak. is that kind of going to hurt? >> actually, i think if you ask the voters, i think joe biden proved what's great about joe biden. he gets it. he's in touch. you know what? 80% of the voters agree. this economy has been bad. people have been buried. that's why they want to elect a president and a vice president who get it. who are in touch and will have

[video clip] >> they voted against extending the middle class tax cuts. why? because they were holding it hostage to make sure they could continue their tax cuts. and romney adds another tax cut with a total cost to the economy of $1.70 trillion. it is $250,000
biden speaking to voters on the second day of his swing through the battle ground state. let's listen in. >> benefits they get now. now wait a minute now. after they were told that, this goes to credibility. after they were told that, what did they do? they still introduced it in the house. and every republican but a few voted for it but for the democratic senate that would it passed and mitt romney said at the time were he president and this passed he would sign it into law. sign into law the requirement y'all come up with $6,400 a year more for the same benefits. and now they say to us, oh, no, no, no. joe, we don't have that plan anymore. well, guess what? they got a message to the american people. they said we got a new plan. new plan. that's going to work better and save medicare. that plan, though, a harvard study comes out and says, that new plan still a voucher, would cost somebody 55 years old right now by the time they get on it $60,000 a year more over the life of medicare. ladies and gentlemen, the reason i bother to tell you this is, the reason i bother to tell you this is,
lost me half a paragraph ago. i want to get your reaction to something gentleman biden -- joe biden said. >>guest: is deadly earnest. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify, raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last fur years, how in lord's name can though justify? >>neil: he just said the middle class has been buried. >> i am missing this. i don't have a term but that was joe biden talking about the middle class being buried with tax increases. >>neil: buried the last four years of the administration and now they are looking at tax increases. >>guest: well, what can i say for joe? after all, just go to obamacare. this campaign has lost all sense, both parties, both campaigns have nothing but utter contempt for the american people. you have serious segments on today, we not having that discussion about what is coming in the debt in this sequestering and what we have to do. that is not happening. we have campaigns for people to say, just basically crazy things on all sides. i think at some point the country is disgusting. i am, i don'
national cable satellite corp. 2012] 6 >> see the presidential debate. next, vice president biden campaigns in florida. then vice-presidential candidate paul ryan speaks at ai rally in new hampshire. after that, the 1984 presidential debate between ronald reagan and walter mondale. >> tomorrow on "washington journal" two presidential candidates cake cake your calls and questions. jill stein from the green party, and the author of "party matters," virgil goode. >> it is the number one priority, and it is the most untouchable thing. that is going to cause more trouble than any other prop problem we have currently in the united states. getting medicare costs under control is the number one thing. >> you say we also surcharge smokers? >> yes. >> for their medicare coverage. where did you get that idea? >> it came from us. i'm the person that put it in the memo, but i didn't have to fight very hard for it. i have been accused of being incensetive, which i guess i probably am. i mean, i'm not really a democrat, but i'm certainly similar to the democrats in that thinking. if you have it, someone
when they're seniors. and i don't know. >> all right, everyone. listening to joe biden with the talking points there. he first went after representative paul ryan the gop vice-presidential candidate and his budget proposals. that said he's also going after medicare. given the demographic makeup of the sunshine state, which has a large already older population, it becomes no surprise that the latest polls show the president with a lead in the sunshine state. now at the same time paul ryan is campaigning himself in new hampshire today. the republican vice-presidential nominee met with voters in the city of derry just a short time ago. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and people -- it sounded pretty good. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old ideas that have failed time and again. >> as for mitt romney, he spent some time in pennsylvania on friday. and despite trailing the president as much as ten points in some polls, governor romney made this bold prediction. >> it is an honor to be here with you and to be here
needed a laugh today. thank you for making me laugh. let's talk about joe biden. he made comments yesterday about the middle class being buried. let's listen. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? >> of course, joe biden went on to clarify. but, ana, paul ryan wasted no time, seizing on those comments. good strategy? >> look, you know, i love joe biden. i don't know how every republican in america doesn't love joe biden. he is a great guy. he's fun. he is the gift that keeps on giving. i miss joe biden. we hadn't heard a gaffe from good old joe in about two or three weeks. it really had been a long time. this is what the campaigns are like today in 2012, unfortunately. we look for gaffes on each other and try to make them real big. i think when joe starts getting earnest, when he starts getting righteous and starts talking about god, watch out, because a zinger is coming out. >> speaking of zingers, t
't have a lot going for them right now, but they seized on a recent comment by joe biden, who else, who said the middle class has been buried. i wonder if they've overestimated the importance of this statement. take a listen. >> those happens to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states, mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. >> jimmy, i'm sorry, but if joe biden is the best thing they've got going for them, they must have a terribly mediocre candidate. >> perhaps if that's the case, then the converse is true. perhaps mitt romney is the best thing we have going for us on the democratic side. but that's not the case. what we have, instead, is a president of the united states who has stopped the bleeding of 800,000 jobs a month. whose unemployment rate he inherited is now down. that the economy is growing, tepidly but growing as opposed to contracting and shrinking under the last president. so, if they would like for joe biden to be their biggest asset, have him. i'm all for it. because they won't be able to, in a trillion years,
yesterday with the help of vice president biden while he was out on the campaign trail. he was describing how middle class americans will be hurt under mitt romney. and then he sort of put -- framed their plight over the last four years this way. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising taxes with these tax cuts? >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. of course the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> reporter: romney campaign put together a conference call to draw attention, more focus to the comments by the vice president. the obama campaign pushed back saying this was just another act of desperation
of the jewish-american vote in places like florida where vice president joe biden defted obama ease relationship with israel. >> i'm not going to talk about israel today. but i want to say one thing. i just want to tell you how proud i am, how proud i am to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president of the eight i've served with. >> reporter: switching gears to court the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign t
states. vice president biden told a crowd in charlotte, north carolina that mitt romney would raise taxes on most americans to fund tax cuts for the wealthy. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? look, folks, we've seen this movie before. massive tax cuts for the wealthy. eliminating restrictions on wall street. let the banks write their own rules. we know where it ends. it ends in a catastrophe of the middle class and the great recession of 2008. folks, we cannot go back to that. >> woodruff: the republican national committee and the romney campaign seized on biden's remark about the middle class. they called it a "stunning admission" that the president's policies have been bad for the economy and the middle class. but biden-- at his next stop, in asheville, north carolina-- said what has buried the middle class is the result of policies that romney and ryan are supporting. in clinton, iowa, vice presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration
releases on that comment. paul ryan reacted to it. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> biden clarified his remarks saying, quote, the middle class was buried by policies that romney and ryan supported. the romney campaign tries to make the stick calling a conference call and then holding a press conference in denver this morning. no doubt we'll hear more about the comments tonight from romney as he tries to draw attention away from his own 47% remark. there is a quick look at tonight's format. there are no opening statements. the president will answer the opening questions. the debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments. the president and romney will each get two minutes to answer an initial question in each topic area but then timing will be left to the moderator's discretion. since obama won a coin toss he won the choice and romney got the choice of if he wants the first or second closing state
netanyahu face to face and today vice president biden addressed that, right? >> that's right, shep. vice president biden many times has gotten into trouble for veering off message and saying something maybe the white house didn't want him to say. today was a case where he stood up for the president. he was at an event where he is supposed to be talking about medicare down in florida with senior citizens. he took a moment out to say wait a second, stop these attacks on the president over israel. take a listen. >> i want to tell you how proud i am. how proud i am to stand shoulder to shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president. >> top white house officials insists during this call with the prime minister today president obama made clear that these two leaders are on the same page and they have the same goal, which is to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. now, how they do that whether it's through military action, whether it's through diplomacy, that's still a little bit shaky, they insist the goal is still the same, shep. >> shepard: what
biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter: romney's aides say they expect the president to call on the gop nominee to offer specifics. >> we're going to limit deductions. >> reporter: but in an interview with the denver tv station, romney began to do just that. >> well, you could do something for instance as an option you could say everybody's going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. and you can use your charitable deduction or home mortgage deduction or o
buried over the past four years, but we need a vibrant middle class. you know, joe biden was right, but we have to have a vibrant middle class, and that's what mitt romney has the prescription and knows how to do. >> all right. going to have to leave it there, barbara, thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >>> remember this moment? >> in ohio. 150,000 jobs, and in the great state of michigan, 211,000 good-paying -- >> of course, that's jennifer granholm, former michigan governor rocking the crowd at the democratic national convention. she is rocking it again and is going to talk about how she thinks tonight's debate is going to pan out. we'll talk to her live this hour. also, some republican sources are dredging up video they say is exclusive of president obama speaking to ministers five years ago. praising his pastor at the time. our local political unit found it's neither exclusive nor new. we'll see what all the fuss is about. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] its lightweight construction makes it nimble... ♪ its road gripping performance makes it a cadillac. introducing the all-n
and there. >>> an amazing story. want to go to vice president joe biden he's exchange in charlotte, north carolina. 15 electoral votes up for grade. >> they put two wars on a credit card. refusing to pay for them. i introduced the legislation to pay for the war. number two they added a new prescription drug entitlement that they didn't pay for. and then they added a $1 trillion tax cut for the very wealthy on top of that. now, they -- those are the facts. the end result of all that was by the time we were elected they had in eight years doubled the national debt, that clock, doubled it and in addition to that they had the slowest job, private job growth since world war ii under this policy. and by the time the president sat down behind that famous desk the resolute in noble office within a week of sitting down our economists told us mr. president you're going to have to deal with a $1 trillion debt this year because there's nothing you can do about it. the budget was passed back october. and so ladies and gentlemen so much for their credibility on the debt, but what did it produce for us?
. in north carolina today, vice president biden took the issue of the 47% comments. it's clear they're staying on message. listen to what the vice president had to say today. >> i know i'm not the only one who has sounded strange for governor romney to write off 47% of this country. what i can't understand is characterizing almost half the country as dependent, not willing to take personal responsibility, seeing themselves as victims. this country is neither dependent nor in decline. i don't recognize the country they're talking about. i really mean it. it's never, never, never been a good bet to bet against the american people. never! never! >> do you predict, governor, we're going to hear that from the president in tomorrow's speech -- in tomorrow's debate, i should say, and speeches throughout the next 35 days from -- >> absolutely. >> -- both the president and vice president? >> absolutely. and they should. as your other guest said, this was a window into governor romney's basic core of beliefs, into his political soul. same thing with paul ryan. they can try to make it up and s
campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symbolic. mitt romney likely will not become president unless he can take ohio. more john fuglesang coming up on the "full court press" after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were

[cheers and applause] >> he has won no idea. there is one thing he did not do in its first four years he said he will do in his next four, which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> no. >> his plan is to continue what he has done before. the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. memo wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate -- >> wednesday, president obama and money in the first presidential debate, hosted by jim
, one thing romney is likely to bring up tonight. a gaffe by vice president joe biden, where he said the middle class has been buried for the last four years. >> reporter: that's right. vice president biden tried to clean up those remarks later in the day, saying he was referring to the middle-class buried by tax policies put in by republicans. ones that romney and ryan want to go back to. but criticism of what's happened to the middle-class over the last four years is one that ryan and romney jumped on. >> matthew dowd, what is a win for each candidate tonight? >> mitt romney has to show up and be confident, compassionate and connect with the audience. but really, he has to put the president on the defensive. he needs to turn this race into a referendum on the president. >> and the president? >> i think the president's all about his mannerisms and his style at this point. i think he can't come across as irritable. he can't come across as impatient. he has to act that he wants to be there, maybe with a lot of smyt smiles. he can't come off out of touch. >> do you think the moderator,
has been part of the elections since the day of john adams and there's no one better than joe biden to give us a little hyperbole as we all know. i think people discount that hyperbole. we know it's hyperbole. we wake up every day trying to build businesses. it's a misnomer out there that private he can quit profits by shrinking companies. in fact, it's just the opposite. private equity creates value by growing great companies. >> so when people look at the attack ads, that you take a company, a steel compa, you send the jobs overseas because that cuts the costs which it undoubtedly does, and in other cases you load it up with debt and you sell it, you don't think that's an inaccurate picture. >> that's totally inaccurate. in fact. we started a steel company in a cornfield in indiana. it's called steel dynamics. it has 6,000 employees today, one of the largest steel companies in the country. what happens in the campaigns, they need to use hyperbole to make these attacks. we have 350 investments, those companies over 28 years have grown twice as fast as the s&p 500. they've created $
biden. >> i was there. you electrified the place. they all say why do we have the 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton run and be president for the next 30 years? >> we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president. you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked, i think, well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third term. when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic at a time people thought the democrats had a lot in the white house. then it was, then after the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats. but, i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want this -- you don't want to run the risk of sclerosis in a democratic society. you don't want to give the idea that any country, particularly this one as big and diverse is dependent on any one person. look at the dictators that have been deposed in the last f
egyptians who heard vice-president joe biden declared that hosni mubarak was a democrat in the julian assange was a high-tech terrorist. it is disrespectful to the dead and to be incarcerated of bringing costs uprising to claim the united states supported the forces for change. that is indeed audacity. who can say it is not audacious to the president's concern to appear to look leaderly, look back on this change, the people's change, and tries to call it his own. we can take hours because it means the white house has seen this progress is inevitable. in this season of progress, the president has seen which way the wind is blowing. and he must pretend it is his in ministration who made it below. >> wikileaks founder julian assange addressing a side meeting of the u.n. general assembly wednesday night. for more, we're joined by michael ratner, legal advisor to julian assange and wikileaks. welcome to "democracy now!" talk about what he said and also this latest information that has come out under the freedom of information act that suggests the u.s. may be looking at julian assange as a
